Sticky Asian pork is one of our standard weekly meals normally saved for a Saturday or Sunday night treat.  It’s good, really, really good!It is the perfect after work dinner, if you come home and do not have much time.

The easy and quick recipe contains peanut butter and ginger, which give it an aromatic flavour.

What pork to choose?

Make sure to choose your pork carefully, as the meat does not cook for long and might stay too tough. Therefore, buy parts, that are juicy. Best cuts of pork meat for this lovely dish are shoulder steaks as they do have a bit of fat on them or a nice piece of pork fillet.
